IFSEC 2017’s organisers have stated that this year’s event saw 27,658 security professionals and 578 exhibiting suppliers coming together over the three days of the show. It included the Borders and Infrastructure Expo which featured the Drone Zone, live attack tests carried out by BRE Global/LPCB, a VIP Meeting Service, the UK Home Office’s JSaRC and a dedicated seminar stream.
Focusing on solutions and learning for large scale security threats, Borders & Infrastructure provided a platform for exhibitors never before seen at IFSEC to meet with a new audience of high level security professionals from government, energy, utilities and transport.
A number of exhibiting companies chose IFSEC as the launchpad for new products and innovations. Among the solutions unveiled were Edesix’s body-worn cameras, Calipsa’s AI-powered video monitoring platform and Redvision’s quietest, fastest PTZ. IDIS also announced a new seven-year warranty.
An area of the show dedicated to installers was another IFSEC first. Installer World featured the Tool Zone, the Engineers of Tomorrow Competition and the Tavcom Training seminar theatre. When the show wound down, visitors to Installer World were able to unwind and network with recruitment consultants in their new dedicated bar, with sponsors Videcon providing the drinks.
IFSEC International will return to London’s ExCeL from 19 – 21 June 2018.
